Why is broner fighting this stiff??
It doesn't makes sense financially, it lower Broners stock win or lose, plus no body is demanding it.
He could have fought, Vazque, Linares or simply jump to 140.
Whats your take guys??
Money has everything to do with fighting the different champions. Any champion that fights Broner is going want a large sum of money to do it. Its a large risk fight and noone wants to put their title on the line against a fighter like that without it really being worth it. In order to keep Broner busy, they probably decided to go with someone that would be easier to make the fight with. This way they have more time to negotiate a bigger fight for May.
